Introducing Andrew Zimmerman who draws with scissors (above) and a saw. Yep, a saw! He is working in that sweet spot between painting and sculpture. Check 'em out below. He cuts strips from wood panels – freehand (i.e. drawing with a saw) which gives them an irresistible irregularity – then reassembles these with a little breathing room between the strips and glues them down to a new panel.
Group of lacquered panels, ZIM012, ZIM020 ZIM014, ZIM028, ZIM029
I get the sense of “expansion” -- but they also remind me of wood grain – all fauxed up, but still made of wood. All dressed up in a coat of shiny enamel paint.
